Barbados, in point of fact, sounds like a great place to go. Not only are the environs and people beautiful, but the Bajans have shown that, if people put aside age-old hurts, grievances, and excuses, a culture can develop that embodies most or all of what has time and time proven to be what tangibly works with the passionate and colorful aspects of other cultures that bring enrichment and intangible benefits.
